    Morning Pops/Jobs. Morning Fellas and good morning to everybody who stopped in to visit this thread.

    Lots going on today so keep it short. Hope everybody enjoyed the draft weekend.

    Not sure what the weather is going to look like today. Started out looking like it was going to be nice but now it's looking cloudy and windy. Take it as it comes I guess.

    Everyone, have a great day!

    Peace........

    Morning Pops and friends.....Well, for some of you it's still morning.

    Haven't had a lot to chat about, so my posting has been mostly limited to smart*** replies. Hope you don't mind.

    Morning, Pops and everybody!
    I hate to admit it, but I do resemble that remark.

    From one ole coot to another. But I think we're cooler coots than our Dads were. My Dad was not a hip coot. I began as a hip cat and grew into a hip coot.

    Morning Pops and all those in need of a funny story.

    So, since I am a liberated man, aka FVP (Fully Vaccinated Person), I hit the car wash for the first time yesterday for the full treatment and sat outside as it was a magnificent day weather wise. Everyone in the village had decided to get their vehicle washed yesterday as well. I had noticed a rather large woman behind me in a fire engine red truck and a woman standing outside her passenger window having a rather heated discussion, equally as large. This was her daughter as I was to discover who had followed her mother to the car wash but wasn't getting her car washed. Odd, I thought but ten minutes around these two and that was not odd at all. There should have been a local ordinance in place prohibiting these two from ever inhabiting the same vehicle, home or county.

    I would guess the mother at early 40's and the daughter early 20's and neither cared about airing their dirty laundry in public because they were talking loudly, not yelling exactly but if I were to guess at the level that crosses over into yelling, they were there. And this went on when the mother got out of her truck and started into the car wash to pay, it never let up. They carried this out to the outside area and sat in chairs 6' apart and now felt the need to cross the yelling line,

    It seems that the mother thought the daughter was a bad judge of men. (From looking at the two of them, I assumed the mother wasn't any better a judge of men and if the father wasn't incarcerated, had run off and I could not blame him. In fact, had he committed a crime to get caught and get away from them, I completely understood it).

    I am telling you, listening to them and not looking at them was the toughest task I faced yesterday because it was beyond entertaining but was about to get a cherry on top.

    The daughter, obviously frustrated, stands up and announces "well, I am tired of this and going to Walmart, you need anything". The Walmart was across the street and I assumed the real reason she followed her mother to the car wash. Now, my ears perked up because I have told y'all about my experiences with large people, Walmart and food in OK and it's been 5 years since I'd had that pleasure. The comeback of Twinkies and Blue Bell Ice Cream are my two fondest memories of my time in OK.....carnage and gluttony.

    I cannot capture in the written word how this woman made her request but I will try. You had to be there but I am glad you weren't or we would have been hysterical and probably gotten crossways with this woman and I wasn't entirely sure she hadn't killed and eaten the father of her child. Just the way she talked to the fruit of her loins told me that if I wasn't careful, I'd be a welcome mat at the single wide. They'd mentioned "the trailer" several times.

    She pulls out her phone and says "Git the big package of bloney and Murican cheese but not the single wrapped ones, they charge you extra for that. (She was right, btw) Git the thin sliced white bread, there's fewer carbs in that(right again) and git them Oreos but git the ones made my Walmart, they put more stuff in the middle" (hence the need for the thinner bread?)

    The daughter was typing something like crazy and I assumed this was like dictation and she had to get it perfect or face the wrath of "these here cookies ain't got as much fillin'".

    The daughter turns to go to her car and gets about 15' away and the mother yells at her "Gloriana, (a much prettier name than the girl) get me some tampons too". OK, now I am so close to the edge, the only thing saving me is she's facing away from me but the daughter is looking right at me. She looks at her mother and back at me with a look I can only describe as "go ahead, laugh you old sob, we'll grab you and make a wish". But the mother wasn't done yet because as her daughter went another 5', she yells "and git the Walmart tampons, them super ones"! Now, this is the first thing that hadn't been a surprise since I had arrived at the car wash.

    You might be asking "how can you remember the conversation"? Don't have to, I recorded it on my phone. I flipped it on record the minute they followed me out and sat down because I figured this was going to get better. I just hoped no one called and ruined it.

    I have played that back three times already and it's as good as one of my favorite stand up comedians, only they're trying to be funny. As I listened to it, I thought 'ya know, that could be one of Carol Lawrence's skits with Vicki but not been as funny as the real thing'.

    Ain't nothin' as funny as real life.

    I don't if you are familiar with Garrison Keillor and his radio program, "News from Lake Wobegon", but... He is a story-teller supreme. And, you, my friend, rank right up there with him.

    It good to see (and, hear) that the fine art of story-telling is not dead, but in fact is thriving on the Cowboyszone.

    Cheers.

    CC, if we were watching that together, we would have been heckling them. Your car would have looked like it tangled with a rhino.

    Wow, what a compliment and to be mentioned in the same sentence as Garrison Keillor besides "I don't know if you are familiar with him". Thank you kindly.

    I dunno Runny, I don't know if you got these kind of women in your neck o the woods. They were definitely WORFs, White Oversized Redneck Females.

    They are the kind Lewis Grizzard, really funny columnist from Atlanta, used to say were "women like that will cutchya".

    Oh, you'll find women like that anywhere men get drunk, ride mopeds, and leave 'em on the side of the road. (A little euphemism for ya.)
    9 months later a big broad squirts one out in the toilet, not realizing she was pregnant, and 16 years later the cycle starts all over again.

    Morning Pops, morning Jobs. Morning fellas and good morning to all who stop in and visit.

    Mothers Day coming up. I hope everybody has their obligations covered with their Moms. If not, you still have a few days left.

    How is everybody doing today? Here, it's nice but you never know, come afternoon, it could be Tornados.

    Guess I'll go see if I can get some steaks wrapped. I bought some nice filet mignons the other day and I figured I'd wrap them in some nice thick Bacon I have. I usually pan seer them and then just throw them on the grill for a few minutes but I saw this recipe where they use an air fryer. I think I'm going to try it. Gonna go get a couple of nice Potatoes, butter them up a toss some salt and pepper on them and get them ready to bake. Maybe a nice Salad today. No beer today though. I think today is a fresh Lemon Aid day.

    I hope everybody is doing well, it's a great day to go out and enjoy the spring. If you have time to go hang out outside, in the yard or maybe just a walk in a park or better yet, in the Woods, go do it. Maybe you work and only have the evening. Go put on some good tunes and crack a beer or drink a glass of wine and just sit outside and enjoy the cooler night air. Whatever the case, go enjoy it. How much I have missed the simple stuff like just enjoying stuff around me. Like the Sun on your face or the cool night breeze blowing on you. Go enjoy it people.

    Gonna leave you with a tune. If you ever have a spat with your Wife, and if you are Married, that's gonna happen LOL...... This is a good song for you to sit down and listen to. Applies to either sex and it works, at least it does for me.

    This song was originally written for Pattie LaBelle and I think Simply Red did a version of this song but I like this one better. Teddy Pendergrass, who recorded this with The Bluenotes, is the version I like best. Here is Pendergrass singing "If You Don't Know Me By Now".

    He did. Melvin was always headlined but Pendergrass was a member that was brought in later. Melvin was one of the original members of The Charlemagnes, who would later become The Blue Notes. Pendergrass joined in 70 and was the lead singer on that track, which was released in September of 72.
